Dove Season Opens

The anticipation is building, where will you be on opening day? Georgia’s dove hunting season opens Sat. Sept. 7, 2019, according to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division (WRD).
“Georgia offers more than 50 public dove fields and this is widely considered one of the best times of the year to introduce someone new to hunting,” said Ted Will, Chief of WRD Game Management. “Additionally, this year, in response to the desire of hunters to end the dove season later, recent framework changes by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service allowed us to provide that opportunity until January 31.”
The official 2019-2020 dove seasons are Sept. 7-30, Nov. 23-Dec. 1 and Dec. 6 – Jan. 31. Shooting hours are noon until sunset on opening day (Sept. 7) and one-half hour before sunrise to sunset for the remainder of the season dates.
More Dove Season Tips and Information:
• Dove Field Forecast (https://georgiawildlife.com/hunting/dove): The dove field forecast identifies available crops and anticipated hunting conditions for opening day.
• Regulations Quick Review: The daily bag limit is 15 doves per hunter. Collared doves may be taken and do not count toward your daily limit. Shotguns must be plugged to hold no more than three shot shells while hunting doves. And, as always, hunters must obtain permission from landowners before hunting on private property.
• Report Banded Doves: In 2003, the U.S. Geological Survey, Biological Research Division and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, in cooperation with several states, including Georgia, initiated an ongoing dove banding project. Hunters can participate in this conservation effort by examining harvested doves for leg bands and reporting band numbers to the USFWS at www.reportband.gov.
• Private Field Plans? Make Sure the Field is Legal: Check out the online brochure, “Dove Hunting and Agricultural Practices in Georgia,” available at http://georgiawildlife.com/migratory-bird-info.
• Licenses Needed: Hunters 16 years of age and older need to have a hunting license and a Georgia Migratory Bird Stamp. This stamp is how Georgia participates in the federal Harvest Information Program (HIP). Some licenses allow the license holder to get the Georgia Migratory Bird Stamp at no cost. Hunters may purchase licenses online at www.GoOutdoorsGeorgia.com, by phone at 1-800-366-2661 or at license vendor locations (list of vendors available online).

Philadelphia Baptist Church will have a gospel sing Sept. 7 at 6 p.m.
Special singers will be Harmon Dawson and the Good News Quartet.

The Martins will be in concert Sunday, Sept. 22, at 6 p.m. at Southside Baptist Church.
Siblings, Joyce, Jonathan and Judy, collectively known as The Martins, have enjoyed countless radio hits and performances at concert halls, arenas, auditoriums and churches worldwide. During the 1990s, The Martins rose to national and international success, showcasing their stunning and distinctive harmonies before a vast array of audiences, from legendary singer/songwriter Bill Gaither’s multi-award winning Homecoming Video and Concert series to the White House to Carnegie Hall. Over the years the Trio garnered eight Dove Awards from the Gospel Music Association, as well as a prestigious Grammy nomination.
In 2003, the siblings chose to take different paths. “We needed that time off to recharge our batteries on all levels,” Joyce explains. “That was a very important time for each of us. We needed to grow individually, both in our spiritual lives, as well as in our personal lives.”
After nearly a decade of pursuing individual music careers, the three reunited in 2010, and today their precedent-setting music influence is as strong as ever. In 2011, they released their first new recording together in 10 years. New Day, distributed by Gaither Music Group, was produced by Jay DeMarcus (Rascal Flatts), and features the trio’s unmatched family harmony. In support of the release, The Martins returned to touring and found the welcome arms of audiences. “Once we got back on stage,” Joyce shares, “something just clicked and felt right, so we thought, ‘If God, in His graciousness, was willing to use us again as a trio, who are we to say that He shouldn’t?’.”
The Martins – New DayIn 2013, the Martins returned to the studio with three renown arrangers, Lari Goss, Michael English, Matthew Holt and David Phelps, to record The Martins Cappella. The recording marks the first an acappella release for two since 1996 and features The Martin’s unmatched and unmistakable rich vocal abilities. Released in May of 2014, the recording garnered a Grammy nomination for Best Roots Gospel Album.
Most recently, The Martins returned to the recording studio to produce their latest recording. Still Standing, released July, 2018 under the The Martins – New DayGaither Music Group label and promised to offer even more success for the popular trio. This all new recording finds the multi Grammy nominated vocal group standing stronger than ever, showcasing their benchmark family blends and intricate arrangements produced by renewed producer Grodon Mote. These compositions, including the remake of their classic hit, “Wherever You Are,” reflect the latest chapter in siblings Judy, Joyce and Jonathan’s journeys as they share messages of God’s goodness and providential hand at work in every season of their lives.
